HOUSTON (Ap. 3, 2008) – Landata Technologies, Inc. (LTI) a wholly owned subsidiary of Stewart Information Services Corp. (NYSE-STC) and Optical Storage Solutions (OSS) formed a strategic alliance to integrate the Landata eSTAR eRecording product with the OSS land records management system, LANDEX. Landata offers LANDEX users their e-Link software application as a seamless integration to allow for remote electronic submission of land records to select participating county recorders.
“Traditionally, documents are mailed, couriered or personally delivered to the county recorders office on a daily basis, said Alan Cellura, President of LTI. “With eRecording, attorneys, title companies and lenders can submit documents for recording from their offices. Documents are submitted for recording through a secure Internet connection, and returned the same day without leaving the submitter's office.”
